On December 4, 2012 the owner of a 2009 Honda Accord contacted the South Houston Police Department to report that the vehicle was stolen from the driveway of their residence.

South Houston Police verified the theft and entered the Honda’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, officers from the Pasadena Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda Accord on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the Honda to a large apartment complex parking lot, where the Honda was parked and abandoned. Officers observed that the license tags had been changed out, and the Honda now displayed stolen Texas tags from another vehicle that was previously reported stolen to Pasadena Police. The officers conducted surveillance on the vehicle for some time, but when no one returned to the scene, they recovered the Honda and returned it to the grateful owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord on September 5, 2008 at Honda Cars of Katy, Texas.
